“… transport infrastructure is more than a mere economic task [for Russia]. Itssolutionhasadirecteffect… ontheintegrityofthecountryasawhole.”

President Vladimir Putin, May 2004

“We need transportation access to the sparsely inhabited regions of the country and promising industrial zones. … In effect, this means developing the sparsely inhabited regions of the country.”

President Putin, addressing the April 10, 2007 conference on Russia’s rail development strategy to the year 2030

“The Russian economy will … fully take up our historical mandate as the energy and transportation center of Eurasia.”

First Deputy Premier Dmitri Medvedev, Jan. 2007 at the Davos World Economic Forum

Why war? Why not a big project?

Former Governor of Alaska Walter Hickel

the intercontinental link a multimodal corridor
Two-track, fully electrified, high-speed rail mainline Yakutsk-Zyryanka-Uelen-Fort Nelson (Canada), total length 6,000 km

Electric power transmission line − up to 1500 Kv DC, 12,000-15,000 Mw capacity

Fiber optics telecommunications lines

Oil and gas pipelines

The Intercontinental Link – a multimodal corridor
global importance of the intercontinental link project
Single, interlinked global transportation network, with corridor for freight shipments between Eurasia and America.

Accelerated global economic integration and development

Development of northern regions of Russia, the USA, and Canada, with enormous natural resources becoming linked to world markets

Positive impact on international political relations

Global importance of the Intercontinental Link Project

The global transportation network

The Intercontinental Link will shorten the trip from Asia to America by 14 days

The Intercontinental Link − missing element in the global transportation network

Russia is the key link, connecting Asia and America

the electric power component of the project
Construction of electric power transmission line with capacity of 12,000 – 15,000 MW.Economies from integration of energy systems and electricity transmission are estimated at $20 billion annually.

Construction of power stations exploiting tidal potentialPenzhinskaya 10.5 GWTungurskaya 5.3 GWCook Bay 9.4 GW

Increased benefits from development of the Southern Yakutia Hydroelectric Complex

The electric power component of the project
the intercontinental link as a national project its importance for russia
Increased geopolitical presence in the Asia-Pacific Region

Improved position in world transportation services markets, as well as energy and industrial markets

An important link in Russia’s own transportation network, linking Northeast Russia to international transportation corridors, thus bringing the country’s transportation potential to life

Precondition for intensive economic development and population of Northeast Russia (year-round transportation access, reduced transport costs, competitive advantages for key manufacturing)

Improved standards of living; new jobs; reversal of out-migration

The Intercontinental Link as a national project – its importance for Russia
